Weingarten offered help in doing so by advertising a new AI tool to delete potentially harmful posts.

"LifeBrand scans your social media (currently covers Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok) to quickly find potentially harmful posts and then guides you to edit or delete those posts—forever! The system scans text, emojis, images, video and sound in both English and Spanish," the website stated.
"Our union is here for you to help you future-proof your social media. @AFTunion has partnered w/LifeBrand for a 25% discount off the cost of this powerful tool that scans your social media to catch forgotten posts that may not reflect who you are today," Weingarten added in a tweet.

"Few people on the internet have repeatedly tweeted more absurd, nonsensical things than Randi. Her mistakes and outright misrepresentations have become so prolific and commonplace, she’s often forced to lock replies to avoid being called out," Outkick reported.
"She once claimed that Ron DeSantis would kill 'millions' of people in Florida with his COVID policies. Weingarten did eventually walk that absurdity back, but it’s representative of the many outrageous things she says on a daily basis," it added.
Weingarten's partnership with the AI company is likely to come under scrutiny, especially after other recent concerning actions at the teachers union organization under her leadership.
Others have criticized her efforts in traveling to Ukraine three times in the past year, questioning why her role would be connected to efforts in the European nation under invasion from Russia.
The education leader is also under fire for her attempts to rewrite history. Weingarten pushed for longtime school closures over COVID concerns but now claims she was an advocate for reopening them.
The latest pitch only adds to her controversy, with her attempt to rewrite the past now extending to an offer for other educators to delete their own social media history.
